Man dead after downtown Edmonton encounter with police: ASIRT

A 43-year-old man who went into medical distress during an encounter with police officers in downtown Edmonton on Friday has died, according to Alberta’s police watchdog.

The Alberta Serious Incident Response Team (ASIRT) issued a news release on Tuesday afternoon, saying the man died in hospital — surrounded by family — on Monday night.

On Monday, ASIRT confirmed it was probing the incident. A 27-minute video of the encounter was posted to Facebook by a witness, who told Global News he believed the man who encountered police appeared to him to be “pretty confused.”
